4 /5

Perfekt för kvällar av kärlek.
Ett bra mellanlagrat vin med körsbärsfärg. Starka dofter av bär. Vet inte varför du var tvungen att veta.
Det gick bra med grillat lamm.

4 /5

Não combinava com o peixe. Um vinho tinto especial, para alguém igualmente especial.
A orla tinha uma cor quase castanha. Cheira muito a carvalho. Um grande tinto.

Rike aromaer av bjørnebær i denne Carignan. Ettersmaken er litt salt på slutten.
Denne rødevin fra Swartland pleier jeg å anbefale.

The wine was fine, but we paired it wrongly. A red to drink with that special person.
It has a very nice colour. Nuts presence on the nose. The best aftertaste of Paarl.

At sight has a very strong cherry colour. Good smoked and toasted aromas. The Spice Route Chakalaka is a well bodied wine .
We enjoyed it in a barbecue.
Perfect with friends.

Spice Route Chakalaka goes vey well with a very spicy fish .
